Real Madrid have had an active summer so far, confirming several departures, contract renewals, and new signings already.

Jude Bellingham has been Los Blancos’ most notable acquisition has been Jude Bellingham, who arrived from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million plus add-ons.

Apart from the Englishman’s signing, the Merengues have not spent much on their other transfers, with Fran Garcia joining for €5 million while Joselu arrived on loan for a fee of €500,000.

But with a big-money move for Kylian Mbappe potentially on the cards, any boost of income would be welcome at the Santiago Bernabeu.

As such, Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Real Madrid could pocket around €4 million from former striker Luka Jovic’s potential move to Turkish giants Galatasaray.

Los Blancos had signed Jovic in 2019 for a massive €60 million, but the Serbian international proved to be a massive dud as he managed just three goals from 51 appearances in Spain.

Jovic left Real Madrid permanently last summer, signing for Fiorentina on a free transfer, with the Merengues retaining a 50% future sell-on clause for the centre-forward.

The Serb enjoyed a decent campaign in Italy, scoring 13 goals in 50 games and it has seemingly compelled Galatasaray to make a move for him.

The Turkish giants are willing to bid €8 million for Jovic and should Fiorentina accept, Real Madrid would be guaranteed half of it, i.e., €4 million.

While it is not a big sum, any income is welcome ahead of the summer transfer window, especially considering that the club had allowed Jovic to leave for free last year.

In a recent report by Manu de Juan in AS, it has been revealed that Arda Guler is expected to play a significant role for Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid next season, despite ongoing rumours connecting him to Liverpool

Currently, Carlo Ancelotti has five key players listed on the club’s official website: Kylian Mbappe, Vinícius Jr, Rodrygo, Brahim Diaz, and Endrick. However, Guler is an additional player who is likely to make a substantial impact next season.

In fact, it is said that the Turkish teenager is set to be Ancelotti’s versatile player for the 2024-25 season. His adaptability is a major asset as he can play in various positions, including as a central or attacking midfielder, a right winger, or even as a forward. 

His recent performance in the European Championship highlighted his capabilities, where he scored one of the tournament’s standout goals. This versatility makes him a valuable addition to the squad.

Ancelotti has clear plans for Guler

Ancelotti has indicated in the past that he sees Guler’s primary role as a forward. However, the coach is not hesitant to use him in a midfield role when needed.

This flexibility will be crucial, especially with changes in the team’s lineup. With Toni Kroos having left and Aurelien Tchouameni expected to play more as a centre-back, there will be a need for additional midfield options.

Despite his potential, there are concerns about Guler’s physicality and his ability to cover extensive ground on the field. Ancelotti has acknowledged these limitations, noting that Guler needs to improve his defensive positioning and overall physical endurance. 

The coach has mentioned that Guler is already working on these areas, aiming to overcome these challenges.

Meanwhile, during one of the celebrations at Cibeles, Ancelotti hinted at Guler’s increased involvement in the upcoming season. He described Guler as a “very interesting boy,” suggesting that the young player will have more opportunities to showcase his skills. 

This implies that fans can expect to see a lot more of Guler in action, making him a player to watch closely in the next season.
